Season 9 of Real Housewives of New Jersey was one of the best seasons in years. Danielle Staub helped make it so with her bridezilla behavior. Two months later, they announced they were going their separate ways. Then Danielle moved on with a new man only days after her divorce was finalized. What a pro!
Danielle’s friendship with cast member Margaret Josephs didn’t survive Danielle’s antics. Their conflict escalated to the point where Margaret pushed Marty into the pool at Jennifer Aydin’s anniversary party at the end of the season. It’s no surprise to learn that the ladies haven’t kissed and made up.
Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid has endured a bumpy road to motherhood. First, she married the man of her dreams, Tommy Feight. It included a televised wedding where MJ memorably told Tommy to “shut the f*ck up” during their vows. The then-45-year-old MJ went through IVF in order to get pregnant. It included multiple surgeries to prepare her for an embryo transfer.
MJ almost had a miscarriage and ended up on mandatory bed rest. As recently as a few weeks ago, haters were questioning if the pregnancy was real. Happily, MJ and Tommy welcomed baby Shams Francis Feight on Wednesday, April 17th. He arrived via C-section at 6 pounds 9 ounces. The little love bug is named after MJ’s beloved father and Tommy’s mother, who are both deceased.
It has been a hard knock life for Luann de Lesseps lately. No one will ever forget the Real Housewives of New York star’s arrest Christmas Eve 2017 in Palm Beach. A wild evening that resulted in charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and crimes against a person. A one-woman game of thrones!
Luann also had legal troubles closer to home. Call it Game of Homes! Luann was being sued by her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps for allegedly violating a divorce agreement and stealing from their children Victoria de Lesseps and Noel de Lesseps. The suit arose from a sale of the family’s home in Bridgehampton for $8 million dollars and the star’s purchase of a smaller house in Sag Harbor for $3.1 million. As per the divorce decree, Luann was to set up a trust for the children funded from half of the Bridgehampton sale. Apparently, she never did.
The visa-challenged drama is so real on 90 Day Fiance that the spinoffs keep coming. The latest promises to bring fans more of one of the most popular couples on the franchise: Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno. That means to quote Mother Chantel: “…Things are about to get a little bit more stupider.”
Pedro and Chantel appeared on Seasons 2 and 3 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? The couple are also slated to costar in Season 4. That decision seemed almost certain after The Family Chantel dinner where there were hair extensions flying as opposed to chicken feet, which piled up like kindling on Pedro’s mother’s table in the DR.
Viewers knew Season 9 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was going to be a rough one for Lisa Vanderpump. Before it even began, Lisa was absent from group photos. Then no one from the cast attended the Vanderpump Dogs Gala.
Ten episodes into the season also known as “#puppygate,” we’ve seen for ourselves how things have gone from bad to worse between Lisa and her costars. It culminated in the infamous showdown at Villa Rosa with Kyle Richards. An episode followed by one in which Camille Grammer made fun of Lisa’s teeth and breath at an outing with the other ladies .
Dorinda Medley tried to make Bluestone Manor scary but “nice” for Halloween on the Real Housewives of New York. That ranged from peeping vampires, a Morgan mansion tour and a naked chef. Much to Dorinda’s annoyance, her costars thought sleeping in the fish room was the scariest thing about the manor.
The room assignment passed around like a hot potato. Ultimately, newcomer Barbara Kavovit was left holding it. The second scariest part was Sonja Morgan’s drunken meltdown at dinner, which was provoked by Dorinda manhandling some Morgan artifacts during their visit to Ventfort Hall.
Viewers have been Keeping Up With the Kardashians, literally, for 16 seasons-– seasons. That’s because the first family of reality television keeps delivering the dramatic goods. This includes a whole new generation of adorable Kardashians. It’s hard to believe this empire was spawned by a sex tape that featured the first among equals Kim Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend Ray J.
A tape that Kim’s genius momager Kris Jenner used to turn water into wine when she shopped around their reality show. It seems another lifetime ago. Now the youngest sibling, Kylie Jenner is a mom and a billionaire. Almost as incredibly, Kim, who never graduated from college, is studying to become a lawyer!
The cast of the Real Housewives of New York has departed the Hamptons for Dorinda Medley’s Blue Stone Manor in the Berkshires. Dorinda really did try and make it nice. That included a field trip to a historic Morgan House for Sonja Morgan’s sake where Dorinda casually touched some of the artifacts much to Sonja’s dismay.
Sonja still regrets the end of her dynastic marriage. So after they return to the lesser manor, she starts drinking like she’s making up for Luann de Lesseps. Drunk Sonja greets newcomer and latecomer Barbara Kavovit outside where in addition to insulting Dorinda’s apartment, Barbara hates on the fish room before setting foot inside. It’s not a great look on a houseguest. Or a new cast member.
